Overview

A Blind Eye (Adam Kaminski Mystery Series #1) by Jane Gorman

Blood ties have an American police detective in Poland investigating a suicide that may have been murder.


A Philadelphia police detective visiting Poland gets involved when murder is suspected, and the local police turn away. Adam Kaminski, with a delegation to Philadelphia's sister city, is meant to be a polite observer only. But a good man doesn't walk away when he sees wrong being done, and he's not about to start now.


Visiting his family's homeland, Adam's been warned by his superiors to be on his best behavior. In a country that has known centuries of wars and occupation, politics are complex and layered with old prejudices and loyalties impossible for foreigners to understand. But when Adam meets a Polish cousin in Warsaw who believes his daughter was murdered, Adam is troubled by the indifference of the police… and by the strange behavior of the delegation's Polish liaison.


Adam begins uncovering clues that point to the killer, clues that lead him inexorably into an investigation of the intricate web of Polish politics and the legacy of the Secret Police. But the past isn’t always black and white, as Adam is forced to accept as he learns more about the killer and about his own family legacy. Will looking into the murder only beget more murder?

I finally realized two characters had the same Polish last name and are cousins. The names of the characters, streets, buildings, etc. In Polish, made this story difficult to read and to picture the characters.

Although I found this book a little wordy at times, it was a reallly good mystery. I learned a lot about Warsaw and some of the politics that were involved in the transition from Communism. The characters were well developed. The story line reflected Adam's personal angst as well as his determination to do the right thing while being in a foreign country. I will be reading more from this author. I just purchased book 2 and can't wait to get started.

The main character is a Philly detective sent on a diplomatic mission to Poland who gets embroiled in political intrigue and murder. The writing is decent, and the story is easily understood. The perspective of the Poles is interesting and very well considered. While there were some minor story pacing issues, I would recommend the book & am very likely to buy another book in the series.

....intriguing story that kept my interest and I particularly appreciated the glimpses of Warsaw landmarks and Polish history. Having spent time in Poland and in the city of Warsaw, I felt the author gave the story some real autheticity. This is a good mystery; one I did not figure out ahead of time.

Decent book but occas dragged on. Good plot and likeable characters. Even though this is part of a series, this is a complete boook w/a conclusion.
